Dyani Barber posted an article in Gluten-Free Food & Product ReviewsI just discovered a ranch dressing that is gluten, dairy, and soy-free, and it actually tastes great. It is called “Nude Ranch” and is made by Abby's Table. I would have to agree that this product is absolutely nude from everything except for taste and nutrition. Chef Abby believes in using the freshest, high-quality ingredients, in order to provide a full nutritional profile. I also would like to include that all of Abby's Table gluten-free dressings are hand packed with care and can be shipped right to your doorstep. I really enjoyed how versatile the gluten free Nude Ranch dressing was, and how I was able to use it in a number of ways that traditional ranch cannot be used. For example, I enjoyed this product alone as a dip, as a salad dressing, and I even used it to make a creamy brown rice risotto! In addition Abby's Table provides a variety of gluten-free recipes that are easy to follow to help you create a healthy dish for just about anyone. Before trying this I would have never have guessed that there was a gluten free ranch dressing that was gluten free, all natural, and was actually good for me!

Amy Leger posted an article in Additional Celiac Disease ConcernsCeliac.com 11/19/2008 - This year my husband and I took in Ida, an exchange studentfrom Norway, who needed a gluten-free home.We couldn’t help but be excited at the prospect to have someone else inthe house set an example for my 9-year-old gluten-free daughter.Ida (pronounced EE-dah) has quickly becomepart of the family. And of course one thing we talk about is food and thedifferences in gluten-free options here in the United States versus Norway. Bread, Gluten-Free, Bread For all of us, bread is troublesome if you’re on thegluten-free diet.Even if it followsyour restrictions, there’s no guarantee it is any good. That has been thebiggest hurdle for Ida.In Norway, shecan get fast food and the hamburgers have gluten-free buns.Can you imagine?“It is more difficult [here],” she toldme.“I eat a lot of Burger King,McDonalds, and pizza in Norway.We havea lot of gluten-free options.”She saysyou never have to worry about French fries either, as they aren’t contaminatedin the oil like most are in the United States. In Norway, not only are the meals more complete (withbread), but they appear to “get” celiac disease.“Everybody understands what you’re saying,”Ida says.We all know here in the UnitedStates, getting a gluten-free burger at a restaurant means no bun. Eating pizza out isa rare treat only at certain restaurants that are willing to explore thepossibility.Right now in the entireTwin Cities area, I know of about 8 places in a 50 mile radius that have agluten-free pizza option.And even this is a hugeimprovement when compared to what was possible just a year ago. Navigating the New Gluten-Free Culture When Ida first got here, I explained to her just howill-equipped most of our restaurants, and many of the people who work there,are regarding specialized diets.While McDonald'shas lists of their gluten-free items on line, many of the people taking ordersdo not understand the first thing about food sensitivities and allergies oreven about what their establishment has to offer. She got a quick guide on the main fast-food places that havegluten-free options, and how to order specialized foods.Also, every time I hear of a place that has agluten-free pizza option, I make sure Ida gets the information.I figure someday she would like to go outwith her friends for pizza.The bestexperiences dining out have been at restaurants with a specific gluten-freemenu (aren’t they all?). For now her focus here is school, meeting new people andexperiencing the American culture instead of food and eating out.She is having a great time learning aboutAmerican football (her high school team is in the state championships) andheading out to the movies with her friends.I suppose as long as I have gluten-free food she can load up at home–she is doing pretty well.Ultimately she is a typical teenager, no matter what country she’s from.
